It is largely true about myspace. Most of the people who actively use myspace are narcissists with a highly deluded sense of self importance. But as for facebook, well then i guess that its enormously widespread use is an accurate commentary of humanity today. It seems like it is becoming an international law for all people in the world to have a facebook page, like some sort of secret international ordinance. The same could soon be true for Twitter, especially now that it has been largely credited along with Facebook for toppling Mid East dictatorships.

This coffeeshop owner has a sense of humor, and a disdain for the mainstream media similar to most freepers... quite entertaining.

The copter was destroyed by our troops...it was our helicopter from the sources reporting in US. Mechanical issues it was decided to destroy it under the circumstances.

I'm confused:

Did this all go down within the last few hours, or have we had Osama's body for a week for DNA testing?

They can't both be true.

I don’t think that is Osama. It says “disturbing image”. Seeing Osama’s dead body is not disturbing.

The locals on twitter who were reporting the events live said it was shot down by the air battery of the PMA FF military academy, the blackhawk then landed somewhere in the Kakul (Kakool) road area of Bilal neighborhood in north east Abbottabad very close to if not on the drill square for the Pakistani Military Academy.

NO idea if this is true, but several different indepedent tweets from locals all said the Blackhawks started circling around 12:35AM local time and were circling 10 to 12 times , there was one explosion around 12:35AM local time, before the big boom (which was probably the commandos blowing the BH after the crash), were multiple explosions, and a local family was injured in the intial crash, 2 injuries.

Another local witness writing in English:

Yes, hence my question: Have we had his corpse a week for DNA testing as reported by MSM or was he taken today?

Only one can be true.

Never mind. I thought it said GAY Tweets.

I always suspected OBN was a little light in the Sandals.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

The timeline no longer makes sense, I think the MSM is confused on the timezones, all the local tweets state this raid occured at 12:35 AM, 2nd of May, 2011 Local time.

Abbottabad, Pakistan is Greenwich Mean Time + 5 Hours.

The SEAL team only landed around 2:15 to 2:35PM, 1st May, 2011, EDT.

The “DNA testing” is a lie.

UNLESS the US Military had set up a field lab in Afghanistan and the tests were performed immediately upon the return of the Blackhawks?

I was under the impression that DNA testing itself required several days. Perhaps a medical/forensics professional could weigh in.

It could also be a result of confusion surrounding the early reports, which had him killed by a bomb/missile. Death by a bullet would not require such testing as he could be identified on sight.

The confusion is simple. Obama said in his speech he authorized the operation last week but it was executed today. I think his comments were leaked to the press before his speech and they were mistakenly reporting it happened last week. Obviously it didn’t since we have all these ground reports from Pakistan today.

This whole story sounds like a Crazy Larry O’Donnel production. “Mr. President, let’s announce it during Celebrity Apprentice and we’ll say we buried him at sea.” Hilarious.

Quite possible that the CIA had assets on the ground who collected a sample from the household trash or something, was returned for testing, they got the results last week and Obama approved the mission.

THe initial reports tonight most definitely had incorrect timelines.

We’ll find out more in the coming days I’m sure.

I´d say the live reports of the heli crash gives us a very certain timeline for the attack. I.e. it all went down hours ago.

WORD OF WARNING:

Don’t go to that dude Really Virtual’s website. It has viruses and trojans.

The twitter site is obviously okay (because it is run by twitter) but that dude’s personal website should be avoided like the plague.

Dunno what coding it is LOL but it certainly is nasty. I saw the link and was just curious about the guy. So I clicked it. My mistake.

Perhaps its not intentional on the guy’s part. Some of these people run their website from their home computer or some really crappy web hosting company.

Whatever the reason, that site appears to be loaded with creepy crawly cyber vermin

I didn't mean to link to that website, the guy on Twitter mentions his web server was hacked and is full of trojans, so who knows.

Not pointing fingers at all here :). Just trying to alert curious and stupid people like myself not to click on the personal website link.

Once again for those that are not well informed about this. The twitter page itself is just fine. Its only the dude’s personal website that is a problem and that too, only if you click on the link that points to it. (Like I did, stupidly enough)

Yeah and I agree, like you say, the guy might not have done that intentionally. IT could be just poor website management

It is largely true about myspace. Most of the people who actively use myspace are narcissists with a highly deluded sense of self importance. But as for facebook, well then i guess that its enormously widespread use is an accurate commentary of humanity today. It seems like it is becoming an international law for all people in the world to have a facebook page, like some sort of secret international ordinance. The same could soon be true for Twitter, especially now that it has been largely credited along with Facebook for toppling Mid East dictatorships.


I began using FB as a source of communication between my Navy kid, his family and us. Eventually, I found people that I’d long ago lost contact with along with old school friends. I’m not one to give out personal information or allow indiscriminate people to read my posts. For me social networking has been a Godsend.
